Access during the health emergency: This park is experiencing a high number of summer visitors. Plan to arrive by mid-morning for the best chance of securing parking.

Forestville River Access provides access to the Russian River, just off River Road, via a parking area and a short trail leading to a scenic beach. Known by local's as Mom's Beach, the rocky shore here offers a lovely view of surrounding redwood forest.

This is a great spot to sunbath and watch summer paddlers heading down river. (Lifeguards are not on duty.) 

Alcohol is not allowed in the parking area or on the beach.
